Johnny Blaze returns in Marvel's trailer for "Ghost Rider" #1

Ghost Rider is a superhero with a flaming skull for a head who rides around on a dope motorcycle and whips bad guys with a chain. There’s something amazing about that that I can’t quite put my finger on…

Oh. Wait. He’s a guy with a flaming skull for a head who rides around on a dope motorcycle. It’s right there in the description.

In all seriousness, Johnny Blaze-- which is one of the best names in comics-- has made a triumphant return, and will be getting a brand new series this October. A new series that will be written by Ed Brisson, natch. Marvel have released a trailer for the first issue, so check it out along with the details below.

Per Marvel:

SINNERS BEWARE IN THE GHOST RIDER #1 TRAILER!

New York, NY— September 6, 2019 — The devil’s bounty hunter returns! Ghost Rider streaks out of the underworld on his flaming motorcycle — with a skull to match — in an all-new ongoing series. Now, take one hell of a ride in a new trailer featuring Editor in Chief C.B. Cebulski, Assistant Editor Chris Robinson and Writer Ed Brisson!  

Following his shocking accession, Johnny Blaze is now the king of the underworld! What challenges does a hero face when he presides over the worst humanity — and inhumanity — has to offer? While Blaze acts as demonic warden down below, fellow Ghost Rider Danny Ketch is tasked with collecting souls above. How does Ketch cope with being forced to serve in a role he despises? 

“One thing we’re really diving into is what this really means to [the Ghost Riders’] lives,” says Brisson.

“What is the Spirit of Vengeance? Where does it come from? Why does it possess certain people and not others?…What’s the mythos of the Ghost Rider character? Those are the questions that we’re going to answer in this series for fans, finally,” promises Cebulski. 

Ghost Rider #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on October 2.
